Weekend Subway Diversions

Once again, there are no service changes directly affecting traffic at any of the stations in or near Brooklyn Heights, except that there will be no C train service to or from Brooklyn (though the A will be running), and no F train service between Jay Street-MetroTech and 18th Avenue, nor G train service between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Church Avenue. There will be normal F train service to and from Manhattan, and normal G train service to and from Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and the fabled land beyond called Queens. A trains will be skipping Fulton Street (formerly Broadway-Nassau), the first (or last, if you’re coming to Brooklyn) stop in Manhattan, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday). During this time, you won’t be able to transfer between the 2 or 3 and the 4 or 5 at Fulton Street. If you’re traveling into Brooklyn, 2, 3 and 4 trains will be skipping the Bergen Street, Grand Army Plaza, and Eastern Parkway stations, though Manhattan bound trains will be serving those stations. So, take a train to Franklin Avenue and catch a Manhattan bound train back to the skipped station. Attention, Century 21 shoppers! The Brooklyn bound R train platform at Cortlandt Street has re-opened after ten years.
